Follow Zed’s Adventure Through The Netherworld in ‘Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny’

by Gary Catig

During Nintendo’s Direct Mini presentation on Thursday morning, it was announced that NIS America will be releasing a new installment to their popular turn-based strategy role playing game series, Disgaea. The next game will be called Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny and will debut on the Nintendo Switch next summer.

The story follows Zed, a boastful zombie looking to rise up the ladder in the Netherworld with his sister, Bieko. One day, he must harness his unique abilities and confront the strongest God of Destruction, who is threatening his family’s way of life. During his journey he crosses paths with the unique residents of the Netherworld and learns if he has the fortitude to defy the odds and come out on top.

Key Features include:

  • From Grave to Glory – Join Zed in his quest to rise above his lowly status and challenge a God of Destruction. Along the way, meet zany characters, explore chaotic new worlds and discover the power of sibling bonds and determination.
  • Undying and Unstoppable – Experience over-the-top tactical combat, complete with insane special attacks and a wide variety of allies to choose from. And when things get too hairy, use Super Reincarnation to keep trying until you succeed!
  • A Netherworld for Everyone – Play at your leisure and even on the go! With customizable gameplay features such as Auto, Retry, and Replay, both new and returning players can forge a HL-raising experience that fits their lifestyle. Diving into Disgaea has never been easier!

It has been six years since the last installment came out, so it’ll be fun to revisit the Netherworld and develop a party of characters from the elaborate class system. Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny will arrive in the summer of 2021 and is up for pre-order on the NIS America website.
